    This guy is just as much white as he is black!

    What is the rule for being white?? 100%? 75%?? Just wonderin'.

    I have often considered starting a thread entitled "black and white" as I have a difficult time wondering why he is always refered to as black or the first black president, etc. I guess I figured that he must have perfered it and let the midia know, but now I'm not so sure. I guess mulatto is not considered acceptable, personally I like the word "zebra" but I'm sure that is not acceptable either, I'd be just as happy to hear him refered to as white as black. What would be great if they just refered to him as Barack or as Mr President, without reference to his color. Bud

    The Chinese Crested (hairless and powder puff) is a hypoallergenic breed. This isn't the breed that can be left outside and house training is not always easy in areas with cold/wet whether.

    God pray for the first dog.

    I always worry about people getting dogs because the kids want it. Most breeders won't place puppies with people wanting a puppy only for the children. The adults should want the dog and allow their children to learn through taking a second in charge role. Too many people dump the dog because they didn't realize the work involved. The first family can always say it is the allergies when the kids get tired of taking care of the dog. Just my 2 cents.

    Before the election, BHO's supporters were VERY quick to point out that he was "half white," not "half black." Now that the election is over, all we hear is that we have the country's first BLACK President.

    Make positive moves against the recession, make SMART tax moves that don't punish small business, and keep America safe....that'll be a good start in making people NOT CARE what "color" he is.....

    Why would they get sick of taking care of a dog. I'm pretty sure Joe taxpayer is paying for someone to do that.

    DOG = reason for a non political photo op...

    It will probably end up like Bill Clinton's lab - dead on the road because they couldn't seem to keep it in their own yard after leaving the White House...
